Target Background

Photoreceptor required for image-forming vision at low light intensity. Required for photoreceptor cell viability after birth. Light-induced isomerization of 11-cis to all-trans retinal triggers a conformational change that activates signaling via G-proteins. Subsequent receptor phosphorylation mediates displacement of the bound G-protein alpha subunit by the arrestin SAG and terminates signaling.

  4. The study shows that, compared to the inactive 11-cis-retinal case, trans-retinal rhodopsin is able to undergo protonated Schiff base (PSB) deprotonation due to a change in the conformation of the retinal and a consequent alteration in the hydrogen-bond (HB) network in which PSB and the counterion Glu113 are embedded. PMID: 28731695
  5. Data suggest that retinitis pigmentosa-associated mutation G51A behaves differently in human rhodopsin compared to bovine rhodopsin; human rhodopsin is more thermally stable than ancestral ancestrally reconstructed mammalian rhodopsin. PMID: 28369862
